The solution used by Ayrshire & Arran for COPD and CHF monitoring was Medvivo’s Home Pod.

This consisted of a tablet running either Windows or android to the clinical triaging system and by Bluetooth or USB to the patient medical devices.

Heart failure patients were provided with A&D Bluetooth Blood Pressure Monitor and A&D Bluetooth Weighing Scales which interact via the Home Pod

The clinical user interface (CUI) is the patient management software that resides on a clinician’s PC or tablet. It acts as the management console that interacts with the patient and Homepod allowing the patient record to be set up, protocols to be configured, readings to be monitored and triaging management.
